Hard Cider

Even in Darkness 

Spanning a century and three continents, Even in Darkness tells the story of Kläre Kohler, whose early years as a dutiful daughter of a prosperous German-Jewish family hardly anticipate the often harrowing life she faces as an adult- a saga of family, a lover, two world wars, a concentration camp, and the unconventional life Kläre builds in post-war Germany.  As the world changes around her, Kläre’s choices cross boundaries in order to protect the people she loves – and to save herself.
